  More accessibility with rollators  
  Dear Sir or Madam,

Old and dusty – modern rollators have long since left this image behind. Instead, they are just as versatile as their users and tailored to every situation in life. The experience with a rollator is perfect when every destination is accessible. The company Myd'l shows how they ensure that barriers will continue to be reduced in the future with customized ramps.

Have a nice week!

Lily Rice can usually be found at the skatepark, refining her WCMX techniques in her pink wheelchair. The training is paying off: Lily entered the scene in 2017, two years later she was Women's World Champion. It was only logical that her biggest challenge to date was in the halfpipe – what it was, who motivates her and how she otherwise rolls, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
